As when I promise something, I am nt able to do what I had said :-<
I hoped to have time to pack a release but this was not the case.
So, don't try to make me promise a date for a next release :-)

I will try to pack a release (but will not be able to test it on other
platforms than SunOs 4.1.x and Linux) for ..... soon

Hereafter is the content of the ChangeLog file since 2.1.6

establish a link between a C variable and a Scheme one. Once this link is

space, variable value is a C data.
